This event has a deep-rooted history. Art Frigo started the ARTGO series in 1975. The very first ARTGO event was held at Grundy County Speedway. Wisconsin Rapids, WI driver Tom Reffner, father of ASAMT competitor, Bryan Reffner, took home the victory.
As the year's went on, the late John McKarn's took over the ARTGO series and carried on the tradition. Past winners include the likes of greats like Larry Phillips, Dick Trickle, Joe Shear, Larry Schuler, Steve Carlson and many more. Now the ASAMT will bring back the tradition with the "Wayne Carter Classic 125 presented by ECHO Bear Cat."
